Really Love My Short TWA

rosscdrosscd Posts: 464Registered Users
Ladies,

I know a lot of you are looking for length, but are there any others who have chosen to keep their hair short for an extended period of time.

I have grown my hair out and I really like my short look better. My husband even commented that he likes my short hair more.

So I am thinking about going back to my low cut and just rock it.

Any other ladies loving their short hair and plan on keeping it?

    After having long hair all my life, I loved my short hair after the bc. Over the last two years I have bc'd 3 or 4 times, with the last one being in July. Each time I went shorter and shorter until I cut it down to half an inch. Currently I am growing out my hair,but I must say I love short hair too.

    I just did the big chop about 1 month ago on the 14th! & I must say, my TWA with some arched eyebrows look pretty nice on me. I would like to grow my hair out though but I'm not ashamed of my TWA like some. =D

    I received my Big Chop on 1/15/11, and I have no plans to grow it out.

    I am glad I am not alone. I am going to keep some length in the top (not much) and bring the back and sides back down. I can't wait. I will post pics when complete.

    Can't wait for pics! I'm glad you like your short hair...I look at pics and I actually miss mine but I really want to make a loose ponytail so I can be even lazier with my hair. When my hair is short I have to make sure I style it.

    i can't wait to see your pics either! i've done two big chops. i've been loving bunning my hair but my middle is a different texture and much more noticeable since my hair is growing. i keep going back and forth about bc #3.

    my hair is fine and thin. i think when my hair was twa, it looked the best. i never did get the hang of a wng on longer hair.:angry3:

    Enjoy your TWA. I've gotten as long as bsl stretched, and I'm back to almost apl stretched. I'm known to remove 4+inches, on occasion, because it makes maintenance easier. For me, the more hair I have, the longer it takes to maintain.

    I'm looking at possibly going shorter.

    I trimmed off another inch or so of hair and I finally have a TWA again, instead of a floppy mid-size afro. :happy7:

    I think I really am liking this look. I may keep it for a few months and then let it grow again.

    I'm one of "those" who never really had short hair before except for a very short-lived Halle Berry phase in the '90s. I do fantasize cutting my hair to about 4" for simplicity, but always chicken out before I get to phase II (planning) of the decision. I enjoy seeing pics of short hair though...

    +1 minus the Halle Berry Phase. I'm going to take the plunge one day though. I'll probably play around with some asymmetrical bob first.

    I was thinking that for myself since the back grows so much faster than the front...

    And I'm one of those who never had long hair. Even when I was a kid it never got much longer than shoulder length. I tried to grow my hair longer than shoulder length in these last few years, but the longer it got the more I was frustrated. I am going to keep my hair above shoulder length from now on..

    i kept my hair short for about 2 years. half b/c i liked the way it looked (despite everyone telling me i need to grow it out) and half b/c my ends kept getting effed up (even though ppl kept telling me they were fin... b/c you know, theyre the ones dealing w/ my hair everyday). i really only grew it out b/c i found a way to keep my ends healthy, so i didnt feel like cutting it anymore. before i knew it, i had almost a foot of hair on my head lol (probably a little more than that now). now ppl are threatening me, telling me not to cut my hair lol)

    anyways... i'll probably cut my hair again sometime in the future. i like simple styles, and pulling my hair into a ponytail i making me happy right now.

    So as I stated above I decided to big chop again. It's now in a really short twa. Loving it. Also had it highlighted. See pics below.

    Nice colour!! I bc'd a month ago after 9 months of transitioning. I'm growing it out, (just want to see my natural hair long), but my husband has told me numerous times that he likes my hair short and he wouldn't mind if I kept it short permanently.

    Last night he and I were out for a walk and I was approached my another natural (exciting in and of itself, since there aren't a lot of us here), who said she's been thinking of cutting hers short like mine is now, and actually wanted to touch my hair and was asking me about styles and such. Maybe short is the new long? :happy7:

    I love short hair on me. When I took my locs out (they were almost waist length), I cut the back shorter than the front. I didn't chop to new-growth, I picked. Then got it cut and shaped last Friday at a hair salon. I think I'm going to keep it this length. When my hair gets long I tend to just throw it in a ponytail, which gets boring.

    Love your hair and color! I'm on my phone, so I'm judging based on your avatar pic since I can't seem to see the pics you added.
